Manifesto for a “World Literature” in French (translated into English)
Manifeste, Pour une “littérature-monde” en français
Please think about what is behind the arguments in this document, how this document is put together and how it connects to other theoretical pieces we are reading for this class, including the articles by Owen and Damrosch (linked here and in the .pdf section.)
Half the class will read the article by Damrosch carefully (last name A-K), half that of Owen (last name L-Z). Of course you are welcome to read both!! Be sure to read the manifesto first.
